True Obsessions is the fourth studio album by guitarist Marty Friedman, released on April 17, 1996 through Toshiba EMI (Japan) and October 8, 1996 through Shrapnel Records (United States). It was also the last to feature Nick Menza on drums. The fourth solo release from Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman finds the guitarist mostly repeating the same formula that worked so well on Introduction.
While with Cacophony, Marty Friedman completed this solo album, an intense classical/speed metal instrumental full of complicated changes, impressive solo work, and incredible drumming by Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Bad English). The heaviest of Marty's solo CD's, this is an exciting collectable for fans of Marty's guitar work with Megadeth and Cacophony.
The new album from guitar legend MARTY FRIEDMAN, featuring collaborations with Alexi Laiho (Children Of Bodom), Danko Jones, Jorgen Munkeby (Shining NOR), Rodrigo y Gabriela, Keshav Dhar (Sky Harbor), David Davidson (Revocation) + more.

Bad DNA, Marty Friedman's 2010 offering, is a hard one to place in the discography of the great Marty Friedman. I bought it on impulse again, buying it the day it came out in Japan. It seems he took the experimental electronic influences scattered scarcely across his post-Megadeth albums (think Cheer Girl Rampage) and incorporated them further into his guitar-driver music. In addition, the liner notes say that title track Bad DNA, Weapons of Ecstasy, and Glorious Accident are written by Friedman, Matsuura. I suspect it involves Takeomi Matsuura, who does some sequencing work on this album too and not the well-known Japanese pop singer Aya Matsuura. Anyway, on to the content!

In addition, there are also 3 new songs on the record: "Barbie", "Tears Of An Angel" and the first single "Simple Mystery".
